Maw (קֵבָה, kebah', hollow, only occurs in De 18:3), the rough ventricle or echinus of ruminating animals, which is the second of their four stomachs (Aristotle, Hist. anim. 2:17). So the Vulg., Onkelos, Saadias, and Kimahi interpret; but Josephus (Ant. 4:4), Philo (2:235, ed. Mang.), after the Sept. (ἔννυστρον, i.e. ἤννυστρον), understand the fourth stomach, or omaum, esteemed a great delicacy (like tripe) among the ancients (comp. Bochart, Hieroz. 1:571 ed. Lips.).
